Plaistowe Film Stars

Issuing Company: Plaistowe & Co., Ltd.
Country of Issue: Australia
Year of Issue: 1930s
Color/B&W: B&W
Number of Cards in Set: 12
Card Size: 2 7/16" x 5 1/4"
Issued as insert with what product: Confectionery Products

Notes: The backs of these cards state that there are 21 cards in the set, but collector Eric Panther believes this is an error and that 12 is the actual number, and the numbers were just inverted on the printing of the card.

Eric Panther (President of the Australian Cartophilic Society) wrote a great article about Plaistowe cards for the Australian Cartophilic Society magazine and has kindly agreed to let me reproduce it here. Click the picture above to read the article.

Thanks to Eric Panther for help with this checklist.
